Synopsis:
Victor Hugo Pontes puts on stage three dancers imagined by the writer Gonçalo M. Tavares for the new creation. Abelard, Adler and Hadrian are The Three Brothers: when they find themselves in that non-place, they search for the trace of their parents, they mark their absence with chalk, they wash themselves, they eat together at the table, they carry each other's bodies in a ritualized sacrifice, they carry each other on their shoulders, they live in flight, the play the dangerous game of meeting the past. Abelard, Adler and Hadrian try to make their connection to the earth and to survive each other's existence, even if has been dug out with a drill, rolled up in a bundle of clothes, transported in a wheelbarrow.
